Interior designer Nicole Hollis is an expert in the ways of moody glamour. Case in point? The interiors of the Palladian Hotel in a 1910 landmark building in Seattle, where Hollis used velvet, blackened wood, and tarnished brass to create atmosphere. Here we take a closer look at Hollis’s design in the bedrooms, with a list of sources to match.

Above: Crate & Barrel’s Arch Charcoal Wardrobe is charcoal-painted poplar and birch veneer; $999. (For more, see 10 Easy Pieces: Modern Wood Armoires.) Alternatively, source a vintage wood armoire and paint it in an almost black color for a similar effect. Designer Clarisse Demory did something similar in her Paris apartment, applying a matte off-black paint and finishing it with a natural turpentine.
